Apple walnut and honey cake – easy and super moist!

Autumn apple cake, perfect for tea time. Its fluffy, super moist, with lots of apples and walnuts, cinnamon and honey. It‘s simple and quick to make (see step by step photos under the recipe). I used brown sugar, its caramel taste works here great, I also swapped half of it for honey. Thanks to the addition of honey, this cake is more moist – even on the second and third day!

If you have more apples left, try these delicious pumpkin apple ring pancakes! This shredded carrot and apple salad is also worth a try.

Instructions

  • Prepare a 27 cm / 11 inch round springform cake pan, grease it lightly butter and line with parchment paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3, no fan.
  • Using a mixer, whisk eggs with sugar until light and fluffy, it will take about 4-5 minutes.
  • Slowly pour in the oil in a thin stream, mixing at the lowest speed.
  • Mix the honey with vanilla extract together, slowly pour in a thin stream, mixing at the lowest speed.
  • In a separate bowl, place flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl, mix with a silicone spatula until just combined, not longer.

* 1 cup is 250 ml (for this recipe using a 240 ml US cup is fine)
* Freezing: This cake freezes very well. Cut it into pieces and freeze. Bake at 160°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3 until defrosted and warm.
